 My Thoughts:
What a wonderful collection!! 
Max Lucado in collaboration of other authors brings us 6 unique books that individually and collectively address prayer.
Each book measures:
5.40 X 5.40 (inches) 
Hardbook or ebook 
112 pages

Each books comes with 40 selected scriptures and guided prayers.  
Myself, as a mother, I focused mostly on the Pocket Prayers for Moms. 
It consists of 6 sections that addresses specific prayers and they are:

Prayers for Time and Peace
Prayers for Protection and Surrender
Prayers for Guidance and Clarity
Prayers for Love and Marriage
Prayers for Healing and Safety
Prayers for Grace and Strength  
  Each section consists of 5 to 7 scriptures that pertain to the titled section along with a guided prayer.  
As I said there are a total of six books that can be bought individually or collectively.  My first thought when I saw these books were how beautiful the covers are.
The size of the books makes if convenient for travel as they are small enough to take anywhere.  Space is provided on each page to jot down notes if you so desire.  
These books are perfect gift for anyone or to keep for yourself.  For instance I could see the Pocket Prayers for Moms perfect for a new or struggling mom, Prayers for Military Life would be perfect for the military family or in a care package for the soldier actively serving, Prayers for Dads would be perfect for the new dad or even as a father's day gift, with graduation upon us this would be perfect for the graduate as a gift, Prayers for Teachers is perfect for anytime because of their hard work and sacrifice or maybe the individual just starting their teaching career, lastly Prayers for Friends is also perfect for anytime or maybe if they are experiencing a difficult event in their life.  When I first received this collection my first thought was Prayers for Teachers would be a perfect gift for my daughter who will be graduating and teaching high school English, the Prayers for a Graduate I will be giving to a young man at church who will graduate from high school and heading off to college in the fall.  Prayers for Moms and Dads I will be giving to a young couple in our church who is expecting their first child in July, Pocket Prayers for friends I will be sharing with a close friend of mine who is going through an unexpected divorce, and lastly I will give Pocket Prayers for the Military to a young man who has just enlisted in the Marines.   
  *I received these books from the publisher via Litfuse as part of their blogger program and book tour.  I was not required to write a positive review.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
